NAME

inotify_rm_watch - remove an existing watch from an inotify instance

int inotify_rm_watch(int fd, uint32_t wd);  

DESCRIPTION

inotify_rm_watch() removes the watch associated with the watch descriptor wd from the inotify instance associated with the file descriptor fd.

Removing a watch causes an IN_IGNORED event to be generated for this watch descriptor. (See inotify(7).)
